   fig.10                                                   fig.11

Filling the water tank

     Never use water that contains additives (starch, perfume,
     aromatic substances, softener...) in the steamer. Additives can
     affect the properties of steam, corrode internal parts and lead
     to the formation of deposits.

     The steamer can be used with tap water. If the water in your
     area is hard, Steamone recommends you that use distilled or
     demineralized water to reduce scaling.

               1. Ensure that the steamer is unplugged. Remove the wa-
                  ter tank from the base of the appliance by pulling the
                  handle upwards. (fig.12)

   fig.12
                                 6
2. Unscrew the cap located at the
                     bottom of the tank and fill with
                     water. (fig.13)
                  3. Replace the cap and place the water
                     tank back on to the base (fig.14)

   fig.13                                                      fig.14

         Always check to be sure that the water tank is full before
         using your garment steamer.

        Lift the water tank to
        make sure there is water
        in the reservoir. (fig.15)

        After checking the
        reservoir, replace the water
        tank on the base.

                                                      fig.15

Use
Start

        Never steam a garment while it is being worn. The hose and
        steam head may become hot during use. This is perfectly
        normal. Be careful to avoid contact with the steam head to
        avoid burns.

        Operate the steamer on a flat surface clear of materials that
        may obstruct openings at the base of the steamer.

                                     7
- If necessary, expand the pole to the desired height by unlocking it, pulling
it gently and locking it again

                   1. Plug in the power cord and switch on
                                                                           2min
                      the power button. The power light
                      will illuminate. The steamer is
                      operating. (fig.16)

                   2. The unit will produce steam in 60
     fig.16           seconds at maximum wattage.                 fig.17
                      (fig.17)

       Steamone recommends that you wait 2 minutes to reduce
       condensation on the steam head and get the best
        performance from your steamer. (fig.17)

Clothes placement

                                          - Put garment into the folding
                                            hanger. (fig.18-a)

                                          - For quick steaming, you can also
                                            use your own hanger on the hook.
                                            (fig.18-b)

      fig.18-a           fig.18-b

- Put garment like dress or pants, into the Upper
  Pant Clamp (fig. 19)
                                                              fig.19

                                                              fig.19

                                      8
Proper Use
Grasp the steam head with the steam vents pointing away from you.

- Start steaming by touching material lightly
  with steaming head and moving in an up/
  down vertical motion.(fig.20)

                                                      fig.20

- The steam head must be in contact with the garment. (fig.21)

                                   fig.21

- The garment must be stretched while steaming (fig.22)
  Use your free hand to stretch the garment

                                   fig.22

                                     9
- Never try to steam the garment in a
  horizontal position (fig.23)

                                                        fig.23

         During use, the hose may make a gurgling noise. This is
         a normal occurrence due to condensation. If you hear the
         gurgling noise, hold the hose up to direct the condensa-
         tion back into the appliance.

      Tips for better performances with your garment steamer

         We recommend checking the garment care label for manu-
         facturer recommendations before steaming. We also recom-
         mend testing the effect on the garment on an unobtrusive
         area such as an inner seam.

         Button up the shirt’s collar to prevent from slipping on the
         hanger during steaming.

         Heavy fabrics may need to be steamed longer.

         If you are using the steam head at a position close to the
         ground, raise the hose frequently in order to avoid the
         formation of condensation. A gurgling noise may be heard if
         the flexible pipe is pinched.

         If no steam is produced, if a gurgling sound is heard or if
         water is dripping through the holes of the steam head, raise
         the steam hose occasionally to remove condensation inside.

         Use caution to avoid burns.

                                    10
Accessories

Before using the accessories, please read the instructions below.

Fabric Brush

         Be sure unit is unplugged and completely cool before
         attaching the fabric brush & creasing tool.

Fabric Brush Use:

The fabric brush can pick up the lint on your garment. It can also be extreme-
ly effective on sofas, bedding, curtains, stuffed animals, rugs and carpets.

                 1. Fasten the brush to the steam head
                    (fig 25)

                 2. Gently brush the area to be steamed with the
                    grain or nap of the fabric (fig.26)

     fig.25                                                         fig.26

          Remove the fabric brush once unit is unplugged and
          completely cool. Remove it by gently pulling down on the
          handle of the fabric brush until it comes off of the steam
          head.

                                       11
Mini Pressing Board

         When using the mini board, always steam in a vertical
         position.

Mini pressing use :

The mini board is designed to deal with the cuff and the collar of the garment.
Before steaming the cuff and the collar of the garment, adjust the power to
minimum

                           1. Insert the mini board under the collar
                              of the garment and steam it vertically
                              (fig.27)

              fig.27

                            2. Insert the mini board into the cuff of the
                               garment and steam it vertically. (fig.28)

              fig.28

Protective glove

 Steamone recommends that you use the protective glove when steaming
 the garment.

          Never touch the steam or the operating steam head even
          with your protective glove.

                                       12
After use

          Never touch the steam head until it has cooled down
          completely.

- After using the garment steamer, switch the power off. The power indicator
  light will go off, and you can then unplug the device.
- Hang the steam head in an upright position on the hook when not in use.
  (fig.1)
- Wrap the cord around the power cord storage area under the base of the
  steamer
- Always empty the water tank before storage

- Do not carry the steamer by the water tank handle, this will only remove
  the tank and the unit will fall to the floor

Transport

          Always make sure the pole is firmly attached to the base
          unit before lifting up the device (see assembly
          instructions).

- Your device has four wheels for ease of transport. Grasp the pole and pull
  gently to move the device.
- You can also lift up the device in order to move it, again holding the device
  at the base of the pole.

Maintenance

          It’s preferable to use distilled or demineralized water to
          reduce scaling.

- To maintain maximum performance, your steamer must be descaled occa-
  sionally. The time between descaling operations depends on the quality of
  the water and the frequency with which you use the appliance. On average,
  the appliance must be descaled after 30 hours of use.

                                      13
Drain:

         Ensure that the appliance has cooled down completely (2
         hours minimum).

                 1.   Unplug the unit and remove the steam hose from
                      main unit. Collapse the telescopic poles.

                 2.   Lay the base on its right side. Unscrew and remove
                      the drain plug (fig.29)

   fig.29

                 3.   Make sure the base is above a water container. Fill the
                      water tank with tap water, replace the water tank cap
                      and put the water tank back on the base.
                       (fig.30)
